Weekly Weigh Ins

April 13, 2011

I plan to keep track of my weight loss by weighing myself once a week. In the past I would weigh myself almost everyday and then beat myself up if I went up a fraction of a pound or if I didn’t go down a fraction of a pound. In short it was not healthy and now I’m trying to do the healthier thing.

Starting Weight

This is me at my starting weight of 153.6

The Goals

Right now my goal weight is 130. If I lose 2 pounds a week which is ideal then I should be able to achieve this by the end of June.

In addition to a weight goal I other goals that have nothing to with the number on the dreaded scale. First would be to not throw away an entire day just because I eat one bad thing. I have the ultimate all or nothing attitude. If I know I’m going out to drinks with friends that evening, then I automatically eat everything and anything in front of me the entire day. I need to learn not to ruin my whole day over one meal or one candy bar, etc.

I also want to workout at least 5 days a week. I have a problem with consistency. This is a habit I need to break. My biggest downfall as of late has been another all or nothing fail. I want to run. I run 3 times a week for a few weeks, my feet starting having pain that disable me from walking and I cease working out altogether. This is no good. 

The Plan

I plan to stay between 1200 and 1400 calories a day. Closer to 1200 on days when I do not exercise and  vice versa. Of course there will be occasions where healthy eating will be difficult to maintain. Take this month for example. The first week I had to travel for work to Southern California (where all my family and friends are) This week I have to make a last minute trip to So Cal and the last week of April I have a planned trip to Seattle to use up the last of my vacation before it expires! I absolutely cannot waste vacation! So obviously there will be ups and downs but I will try my best to eat in moderation when I cannot resist all the good food and going out!

So that’s it. I will be back next week to check in with good news, hopefully  Smile
